    I was going to ask this same question! My Silkie sneezed (?) on me today. [​IMG] She's healthy, hungry, active, etc. but it sure felt like a sneeze.

    They can sneeze from fine dust in dry weather. As long there aren't any other symptoms, and it stops when the rain comes, I don't think there's anything to worry about. But if they have a discharge from the eyes or nostrils, it's big trouble...
